Dario Serrentino is the driving force behind this family owned estate which spans 25 hectares of vines, ancient olive groves and heirloom almonds. After years of selling his grapes to local, low-intervention stalwarts like Frank Cornelissen and Lamoresca, the dawn of 2014 saw Dario make the call to begin vinifying his own wines and for this we are very grateful.
His farming is organic and his vines are grown in the old school bush vine system with harvesting only by hand. The light handed approach continues in the cantina with the only additions being small amounts of sulphur at bottling.
These are wines that transport us to Sicily.... drinking them is like taking in its sunshine and bathing in its salty cool sea.
Its a field blend…. Tuttu meaning ‘All’ of the local varieties. 75% Nero d’Avola, 5% Grillo, 5% Frappato, 5% Insolia, 5%Catarratto and 5% Perricone. Its very Beaujolais meets Sicily and a typically vibrant and fresh wine that we have come to expect from Dario. Likes a chill. Look out summer!
